IFA 2020 is a wrap.
In our new reality, major events like CES will be virtual, no more hordes of people flocking to Las Vegas in January to see all the latest tech. The same goes for this past week, we ‘attended’ IFA 2020 (in Berlin) from the comfort of our desks at home. There’s more to it than that, obviously, but you’re here to read about the tech, not the struggles of tech journalism.
To wrap up the show, we’ve awarded our top picks in 30 categories. We start off with the best smartphone, best budget smartphone, best smartphone innovation and best mobile accessory, and then expand into wearables, smart home technology, televisions, computers, headphones, tablets, gaming and more.
Forgive us this blatant tease:
- Best smartphone: …made by Samsung
- Best TV: …an LG product
- Best smartwatch: …from Fitbit
- Best laptop and best gaming laptop: both by MSI
